The Swintern of Swintern is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Duccwerte IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, devout population of 2.915 billion GriisÍns are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frjentsweide. The average income tax rate is 23.5%.

The strong GriisÍn economy, worth 59.1 trillion Marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 20,259 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Bins outnumber trees in city parks, increasing inclusiveness is a sign of the times, the hit new medical TV show "Home" prominently features the brand of painkiller the lead doctor is addicted to, and the dartboard at the GriisÍn Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Duccwerte IV's face. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Swintern's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Gerbrenism.

Swintern is ranked 206,276th in the world and 3,688th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -2.42 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
